Election procedure

  1. Voting: Citizens are asked to list -- in order of preference -- all candidates whom they approve (and only those).
This list may contain all candidates or may be empty, too.
  1. Approval threshold: In a first step all candidates are removed from the ballot who have not gained minimum support (25 percent).
The threshold is to be calculated from the number of ballots cast.
  1. Election result: The remaining candidates are ordered according to the number of votes gained. If seats remain vacant they shall be filled in a special election (three months later). Remaining candidates may serve as reserve members.

Discussion: see the forum for my arguments. --Peter Schmitt 20:50, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
